First, I stand corrected, upstate NY doesn’t count as New England apparently. Fine.
Second, a small clarification on the “I can’t decide if I’m delighted or skeptical: I think I’m a bit of both” statement. I’m delighted because theoretically I can shop at my local grocer and find foods that I feel good about buying. However, I’m skeptical because the whole point of organic is buying food from small local farmers who farm in way that doesn’t destroy the soil or environment. How can I trust the MAN i.e. huge conglomerates like Kellogg’s or Swanson’s that they are producing true organic products?
